Dr. Alexandra (Sasha) Berdichevski - Designing the scaffolds for tissue engineering: 3D geometry-function relationship

Föreläsning

"/>

Welcome to our next lunch seminar within our seminar series on Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine at the Department of Biomaterials.

Dr. Alexandra (Sasha) Berdichevski, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK
"Designing the scaffolds for tissue engineering: 3D geometry-function relationship"

Each tissue in our body has unique structure and function. In tissue engineering we attempt to create living tissues and organs in the laboratory by combining cells with a supportive matrix (scaffold) and suitable biochemical factors. There are a variety of biomaterials that are used as scaffolds. These provide cells with the mechanical and biochemical cues found in native tissues. Additionally scaffolds provide a 3-dimensional (3D) structure, thereby spatially directing cell-mediated tissue regeneration in an appropriate manner. The speaker will give examples of different biomaterials used for tissue engineering, and how manipulation of the material composition and 3D geometry can affect the cellular response in vitro, as well as scaffold performance in vivo.

Sandwiches will be served. No registration is needed.
